DeAnn Sullivan receives our SERVICE ABOVE SELF AWARD

DeAnn Sullivan is the recipient of the 2009 Service Above Self Award presented by the Rotary Club of West Wichita.

The purpose of the Service Above Self Award is to recognize fellow Rotarians for the outstanding contributions they make to the community, our club, social, religious, educational, business ethics, and/or other worthwhile activities that make Wichita a better community.

Nominations were made by club members then voted on by past recipients of the award.

“This year’s recipient has been a very active member of our club for the past 10 years, serving on the board and various committees and spearheading club projects and activities,” said current club President Dr. Mike Ludlow. “Just to mention a few… she has hosted Rotary International Teacher Exchange guests, organized the map paintings at the elementary schools and dressed up as ‘Dipper’ to deliver books to kindergartners. She has done a lot to help get our club organized in terms of documentation to help future committees.”

Serving as 2007-08 Club President, Sullivan was instrumental in helping the Rotary Club of West Wichita win the District’s "Club of the Year" award in 2008.
